Bison, Gnats & Epic Views on Antelope Island


When my brothers place in Jordan, Utah flooded out during my trip we caravanned north to Layton to stay with Lauren’s sister Caroline. I thought it was a great opportunity to finally go visit Antelope Island, a state park located on the Salt Lake and mere minutes away from our new accommodations. Lauren expressed concern about it being smelly this…

Hiking to Donut Falls


When I planned my trip to Salt Lake City I told my brother Bruce that the trip was all about baby Liam but I did want to squeeze in one short hike. I told him a quick one, no more than half a day so he took me out to Cottonwood Canyon (I can’t remember is he said it was the…

Ringing in the New Year with Utah Adventures


I’m back! I had a glorious week and a half off where I haphazardly checked my social media and email, but not much. It was major road tripping week for me as I drove from Magrath to the Tri-Citites, Washington, to Salt Lake City and back! My family Christmas was amazing filled with lots of laughter. I won’t go into…
